Joseph Acquah

This is my portrait of Joseph Acquah, a sculptor, that consists of three photographs. I photographed the (human) sculptor facing right. I

photographed the sculptor’s self-portrait in bronze facing left. And both of these I placed into a third, silhouetted photograph of the sculptor’s

bronze self-portrait. For me, this photograph is about introspection, and about the impossibility of truly comprehending certain things. One can

either see the two faces, or the silhouetted artwork, but not both at the same time. This challenge to our understanding is but one of the many

contradictions artists grow to live comfortably with.
